NFL Mock Draft 2013: Seahawks to add weapon for Russell Wilson?

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Could the Seattle Seahawks add a weapon for Russell Wilson in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft?

The Seattle Seahawks will count themselves among the NFL's elite teams going forward, and that means they'll be picking with them in the NFL Draft. After a trip to the NFC Divisional Round, the Seahawks will pick at No. 25 in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fortunately, a trip to the playoffs can give a team a much better idea of where they stand and what needs they have. The Seahawks made some significant strides on offense with quarterback Russell Wilson this season, but they do suffer from a lack of offensive power at the wide receiver position.

Dan Kadar of SB Nation released his latest mock draft on Monday, and he has the Seahawks addressing such a need. He has them taking DeAndre Hopkins, the wide receiver out of Clemson.

The Seahawks are the new darlings of the NFL, and going forward they don't have a lot of glaring needs. Pete Carroll has made it known he's going to add defensive linemen this offseason, so a player like Sam Montgomery of LSU could get a look. But a wide receiver like Hopkins could be a star with Russell Wilson throwing deep passes.

Wilson made some serious strides in his rookie season, and made a very solid case for rookie of the year honors. Seattle was expected to be a strong defensive team with no real identity on offense, but Wilson quickly turned them into a fast-paced, high-scoring offense.

Hopkins can only add to that. He's one of the best receivers in the draft and could be a deep threat for the Seahawks right off the bat, learning and picking up more of the playbook as his rookie campaign goes on.
